TVR Awards -- The Best Examples of Why Dave Price is No Longer Employed (VIDEO)

by Donald Deane, posted Dec 21st 2010 1:50PM

While we've been fans of weatherman Dave Price for years, we can't help but suspect his goofy antics contributed to his recent ouster from 'The Early Show.' Sure, the network says he, Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez were fired as part of a retooling to boost ratings. But we're not so sure. Review the evidence as Price licks, flubs and fumbles his way out of a job in The Best Examples of Why Dave Price is No Longer Employed. And yet, despite all this, we'd welcome Price back in a second. We salute any weatherman who can consistently make us this uncomfortable.

Craig Ferguson Introduces the New 'Early Show' Team, Complete With Awkward Pauses (VIDEO)

Craig Ferguson Introduces the New 'Early Show' Team, Complete With Awkward Pauses Well, tomorrow is another day. Unless you're the hosts of 'The Early Show,' that is. Two weeks ago, CBS fired every single member of the perennially-last-place morning talk show. 'Early Show' hosts Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez are out. CBS even fired weatherman Dave Price. (Which seems a little unfair to us. What did the weatherman do wrong? Did he miss predicting a tsunami or something?)

In place of the former team, CBS brought in an entirely new crew. Shockingly, they are a bunch of good-looking young people -- the guys wear suits, the women wear short skirts. (Unexpected!) But who are these young kids? On 'The Late Late Show' (weeknights, 12:37AM ET on CBS), Craig Ferguson tried to figure it all out.

They are: Erica Hill, co-anchor; Marysol Castro, weather anchor; Jeff Glor, news-reader; and Chris Ragge, co-anchor. Nifty! Next, Craig tries to puzzle out how this actually changes anything for the show. "So what new stuff is gonna be happening?" he asks. "Are you gonna have new weather?"

Yes
, says Marysol. "Somewhere, it's be gonna sunny; and somewhere, it's gonna be ... not sunny." Fantastic. Please, say no more.

'The Early Show' Exec Producer: Why Smith, Rodriguez and Price Had to Go

by Catherine Lawson, posted Dec 1st 2010 8:00AM
'The Early Show'Yesterday we heard that anchors Harry Smith and Maggie Rodriguez, plus meteorologist Dave Price, had been axed from 'The Early Show' in a major reshuffle of CBS News on-air talent.

Now, executive producer David Friedman has been explaining the reasons behind the sweeping -- and, to many, unexpected -- changes. He told The Hollywood Reporter that although the shakeup came after a lot of careful consideration, "it feels sudden because there are multiple people and it feels like a big deal."

The change of hosts has allegedly been a topic of discussion at CBS News for some time, according to sources, and it reinforces the critical importance of chemistry in morning television. Announcing the new anchors -- Erica Hill and Chris Wragge -- CBS News President Sean McManus said "This new team brings vibrancy, intelligence and warmth that I think America will grow to love."

Echoing that sentiment, Friedman said: "These shows are about the team ... It's about finding the right team."

'The Early Show' Gets "The Bad Situation" to Cover the Weather (VIDEO)

Dave Price, 'The Early Show'Apparently this whole 'Jersey Shore' situation is contagious. Over on 'The Early Show' (Weekdays, 7AM on CBS), weatherman Dave Price was inexplicably replaced by a new character he dubbed 'The Bad Situation.'

Co-anchor Maggie Rodriguez suggested 'The Muffin Top' instead, which wasn't very nice. But once she said it, we couldn't help but notice that Price was sporting a slight one in that tucked in white t-shirt.

Before he got down to the business of the weather, apparently 'The Bad Situation' got stood up. He sauntered over to a senior citizen fan nearby. "I call you Saturday night. I buy you a rose. I wait. We're gonna go out. You don't call me back. What's that all about?" he asked her.

On 'The Early Show' (weekdays, 7AM ET on CBS), anchor Maggie Rodriguez reminds actor Alex O'Loughlin, who stars with Jennifer Lopez in 'The Back-up Plan,' of an old quote in which he said he's afraid of losing his anonymity due to fame.

"It is true. I think that a lot of actors are private people. I think a lot of actors really, you know, don't live the life that the rest of the world thinks we would live," O'Loughlin said, adding that he "might have to move to Hawaii' in order to deal with his increasing fame.
